Paramore’s Hayley Williams and her twin Chvrches’ Lauren Mayberry gave fans an epic collaboration last night in Nashville. Williams joined the Scots onstage Tuesday night in her hometown of Nashville for a performance of “Bury It,” off Chvrches’ new album. Watch below.
For the deluxe reissue of Paramore‘s 2013 self-titled album (out today, Nov. 24), the band has released a music video to accompany a new version of the song “Hate to See Your Heart Break,” re-recorded with new vocals from The Civil Wars’ Joy Williams.
“When we met, I was 12 and Joy was like 18 or 19, I think,” Hayley Williams told NPR. “I was already a fan of hers. It was fate that we became friends. She was always giving great advice and listening to songs I’d written or big plans I had about becoming a real artist… I love that I got to sing this with someone who I have shared my pains and my stories with for quite some time. Someone whom I know well and who I’ve sat and listened to as they share their own pains. It was never meant as romantic song between lovers but always a song to a friend. Now it’s even more special. I think of it as an ode to sisterhood.”
Last night (October 24), the We Can Survive concert event at The Hollywood Bowl brought together some of music’s biggest acts for a great cause. The star-studded show, which featured performances by Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Sia, Iggy Azalea, Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani, was presented by 5-hour Energy to benefit Living Beyond Breast Cancer and Young Survival Coalition and was hosted by CBS Radio’s Carson Daly.
Throughout the night, artists on the packed line up remembered to re-focus attention on the charity at the heart of the evening, and encourage hope and strength in the cancer survivor community.
Paramore’s Hayley Williams paid tribute to Robin Williams at a concert in Denver Tuesday night.
Prior to singing “Last Hope,” Williams said, “I realized how sad that we had been and how we had been in this place where we weren’t content, we weren’t fulfilled anymore,” she said about the recording of last year’s self-titled album. “It was very scary, it was very depressing. And then this song happened, and sort of a light came on and it was amazing how much I realized I was a part of something — we, the three of us, are part of something…You are part of something. Please know that. This song goes out to Robin Williams.”
